Mike Genovese rocks Podcamp Ohio

Written by Doctor Anonymous on June 29, 2008 – 7:41 pm -

What a great time everyone had at Podcamp Ohio this weekend! One of the many highlights for me was the live music at lunchtime. Mike Genovese is someone I just met at Podcamp. I shot a ton of video this weekend, and I wanted to get this piece out as soon as I could, because I really like the sound of this guy’s music and I know that you will, too. (See video post above)

The majority of the video is at the end when he plays his first song. And, since most people were still in the lunch buffet line, the room didn’t look to crowded at first. But, by the end of his set, the room was packed.

As Mike was setting up, he was nice enough to do an impromptu interview. We talked about his upcoming album called “So The Story Goes” and he said that it will be released sometime in the next couple of months. So, definitely check out his website and his myspace page.

Talking about video, I saw a lot of people shooting video this weekend. As you put things together, I encourage you to share it at the Podcamp Ohio group on Viddler. There’s a feed over there to subscribe to, so that you will know exactly when I (and hopefully others) post videos to the site.

Need a dance break during PodCamp Ohio?

Written by kait on June 23, 2008 – 12:34 pm -

If you find yourself needing a dance break, background music for your personal podcast or some relief from the pressure of your iPod headphones during PodCamp Ohio, you’re in luck. Mike Genovese, a solo, acoustic musician from Columbus, Ohio (via Cleveland), will provide lunchtime tunes at PCO starting at 12:30p at ITT.

Read his official below to find out more, but I can tell you from experience, it’s sure to be a good time!


Mike captures audiences with his engaging live performances. Inspired by artists Tim Reynolds, Howie Day and Joseph Arthur, Mike incorporates the use of a technique called “looping” or “sampling” that happens LIVE by adding layers of sounds, finally creating the presence of a full band. You’ll be tapping your feet when Mike cuts phat beats (yes, phat…) live on-stage to accompany his songs.

Although still relatively new to the music scene, Mike has shared the stage with many national acts including: Pat McGee Band, Ari Hest, Matt Wertz, Mat Kearney, Jump (little children), Lifehouse, Tim Reynolds, Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, Virginia Coalition, Jack Johnson, G. Love and Special Sauce, Blessid Union of Souls, Matt White, ZOX, Michael Tolcher, Rusted Root, Collective Soul, Cary Brothers, The Clarks, Josh Hoge, Mason Jennings, Blue October, Carbon Leaf, Red Wanting Blue, Oval Opus, Mieka Pauley, and The Damnwells.

Watch for Mike’s latest CD due out this year!

Written by brandice on May 26, 2008 – 12:36 pm -

Here are the first two videos from the Podcamp meetup in Columbus a couple weeks ago. In the first, you can see a bit of our Panera time and then little tidbits of our wanderings through ITT Tech. The second reveals that no one at ITT Tech likes podcasting and we epic fail at interviewing.

Written by angelo on February 23, 2008 – 12:26 pm -

In this episode we talk about pre/post event planning, promos, registration and session planning.

Dave is going to look at the possibility of getting podsafe entertainment for the night before PodCamp. Dave and Matt are working on creating promos.

We go over the registration page that Joe designed, it is very close to going on-line. We also discussed the Attendee Directory page that will be going live when registration goes live. We’re going to twitter the users who register with the option selected to be included in the Attendee Directory. The twitter message will start with @twitter_name + description twitter style from registration. If you’re following PodCampOhio on Twitter, you’ll know who to follow who’s going to be attending PodCamp Ohio!

We talked about planning sessions. We discussed the idea of reviewing the proposed sessions with a committee or accepting sessions in the order they are received. We decided to stick with accepting session in the order they are received. While brainstorming we took Scott’s idea of having lightning sessions with the idea that the lightning session would be on a specific topic such as Web Site Tools.

We discussed revising the web site, we’ve removed the ‘The Podcasters’ section of the blog roll and created two pages, one for Organizers and Volunteers and another for PodCamp Ohio Fans.
